While the LA Times still hasn't found the time to report on Rev. Wright's allegations that President Obama tried to buy his silence, they have plenty of time to dig into Ann Romney's "pricey" hobby:
Though Romney was dropped from the case after 18 months of litigation, the deposition reveals her passionate engagement in a rarefied sport that she believes helps her deal with a debilitating chronic illness. It also displays her fear of privacy loss, and a depth of feeling for a handful of extraordinarily expensive horses that she compares to maternal love.How does the LA Times explain Ann Romney's love for "extraordinarily expensive" horses?
She soon fell in love with dressage, a fussy Olympic sport that is also called "horse ballet." In dressage, a horse moves in delicate, dance-like steps to music as the rider, formally clad in top hat and tails, imperceptibly guides the animal.
Because it requires tremendous muscle control, dressage also provided Romney unexpected therapeutic benefits.
Thank's to the LA Times we now know would be first lady Ann Romney is a fussy elitist that likes to prance around town on her pricey horses while formally clad in a top hat and tails and is absolutely nothing like our current first lady.
